The Hanalei Valley lookout is truly a signature view on the island. You see the mountains and the taro fields....and beautiful waterfalls. Drive down to the curve in the road and see another amazing view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Not a lot of parking at either place.

Really pretty to stop and see this. It's a quick 5 minute stop. Got a few pretty pictures. You can just stop in the little side cut away from the road.

Make sure you stop off at the view point of Hanalei Valley, it's easy to park and easy to pass. The kodak moment is within your grasp. Breathtaking!

We went early in the morning, looking down at the Hanalei Valley. We were very lucky because it was sunny, the tarot fields were showing their true colors. I think it's a place definitely worth stopping by to have a good look.

Stop here and get the photo for your Christmas card. We found that morning light was better than afternoon light at this spot.

The first day we were in Princeville we took a drive to Hanalei Bay and were mesmerized with the views from the lookout. All you see is lush green mountains and valley. Excellent place for photos and beautiful sunsets when it's not covered with rain clouds.

Whenever visiting Kauai. Another place to visit, is this lookout. A great location, and great views of this side of the island. Very easy to do on your own with a rent-a-car.

This was a great overlook prior to heading down into Hanalei. The agriculture view was nice and a great photo opportunity. I think this shot is also in the movie the Descendents!! Worth the stop on your way to Hanalei.
